All the e-books you will ever need on holidays!

Every time Eileen and I packed to go somewhere, we used to put in a book or two each for each week we would be away. These things used to be trees once. They get heavy when you end up with half a dozen in each suitcase. And that’s a few more souvenirs you can’t bring home, although that might be a good thing. We often just used to leave books behind when we came home.

We try to buy, borrow, or hire books when we are away but that’s not always good in a country where nothing much written in English is available.

Enter the e-book. Usually cheaper than a paper copy, they can be easily downloaded over the internet from home, or any WiFi area wherever you happen to be. All you need is something to download to and read them on; like a Kindle, or an iPad, the Barnes and Noble Nook, or various Sony readers. You can even use your existing laptop to save buying another thing to have to carry, although laptops that are that portable don’t usually have a very good battery life, and the screens can be very difficult to read in sunlight.
